Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Prevent force push on release and master branches
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2014 13:18:12 GMT
I think you could still delete remote tag and retag and push, instead of doing a force push?
But yeah, if this is needed we should keep things as it is.

I just wanted to bring this issue to everyone and see if we should do something about it.

Seems pretty likely to me there was a use case that required opening it up. I would guess
tag moving to be a major argument, which I _think_ requires forcing.
